Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield | Yorkshire and The Humber

Sporty Diverse local nightlife City

Ucas code: S21

Sheffield has all the excitement of a major city but the friendliness of a small town. The university and students' union work together to enhance the student experience; your employability is at the top of our agenda. We have lots of societies, sports clubs and volunteering opportunities, plus the largest number of students in Britain on courses with a year's paid work placement.
